A real boon for the ladrang

11 August 2010 - 11:59pm 2 Comments

Bringing with him a background in the supercharged world of advertising is Andrew Boon, who joins the ladrang this week as assistant to our Director of Operations, Liaison JP Thong. As a former creative consultant for an international advertising agency, and co-founder and managing director of two design consultancy firms, Andrew’s creative and corporate experience makes him the perfect candidate to help His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche bring a different flavour of Dharma out to the world!

He is lovely, enthusiastic and very keen to benefit others as Rinpoche has benefited him, so let’s all welcome him to the Kechara family next time you see him around!

  1. Andrew Andrew…

    The description above fits him really really well: “He is lovely, enthusiastic and very keen to benefit others…”

    I knew Andrew not too long ago but I could say he will lift your spirits instantly the minute he greets you! Yep that’s Andrew, always smilling, always cheerful, fun…

    In the beginning when I met him in Dharma (Shantideva) classes, he was very friendly but a bit reserved…

    Many of us not sure if he speaks Chinese as his English accent sounded beautifully but foreign… then one day he just responded to our conversation in Chinese, I was shocked. He said he is a Teochew… and yes, another ‘ang’ xxxx (you know… the joke about Teochew having… ahem!); and so we laughed… Not long after that he joined us in the retreats, from there I get to know him more…

    Andrew is really a very very kind and nice person…

    I rejoice my friend that you’ve taken this step to do Dharma full time…

    Take care
